Injustice Anywhere is a Threat to Justice Everywhere
My lady Nicole had her mural dedication today. It was commissioned by a Dutch Human Rights Lawyers group Miles4Justice and co-led by our artist friend Chris Soria. The mural was designed and painted by young adults (14-20yrs old) from Red Hook Community Justice Center and after school program ran by Groundswell Mural Projects under Nicole and Chris's guidance. This is her 4th Summer mural.
These small pictures really don't do justice. Hopefully Groundswell would load up bigger pictures on their website soon.
The Mural overlooks the waterway between Brooklyn and the Statue of Liberty on the Valentino Pier in Red Hook, Brooklyn. It's on the side of an old box factory right at the edge of the pier. It's massive and very awesome!
